Mike Tyson says he’s ‘so lonely’ in California without his kids and pals as boxing legend opens up on lockdown struggles

MIKE TYSON has revealed how lockdown in California has left him feeling ‘so lonely’ and longing for a full-time return to Las Vegas.

The 54-year-old returned to the ring after a 15-year absence in November to battle out a memorable draw with Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition bout.

Iron Mike revealed it was impossible to turn down the ‘$100million offered’ to get back into the ring.

He is now believed to be in talks with Evander Holyfield over another money-spinning exhibition bout against the man he was infamously disqualified against in 1997 after biting a chunk out of his ear.

Tyson continues to train and keep in impressive shape while based in California, and away from the ring he is also raking it in.

He has been selling cannabis products since 2016 through his Tyson Holistic label that are as potent as one of his uppercuts.

He plans to supplement that business in California, more specifically in pioneering cannabis city Desert Hot Springs, with his mega Tyson Ranch.

However, he still has a home in Seven Hills, Nevada, and with his family and friends spending most of their time there, he admits he is feeling loneliness.

Speaking to UFC president Dana White on his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, the Baddest Man on the Planet opened up about his life in California.

He said: “I wanna go back to here, California got me so lonely over there.

“I’m working out and everything but I mean it’s lonely.

“I need to be here playing with my kids and chilling out with them. I’m really lonely out there.

“It’s not like here, where we’ve got our friends and neighbours.”

The former heavyweight champ has been married three times, with his first wife being Robin Givens, although the marriage ended after a year.

The Deseret News reported that after the divorce, Tyson admitted he was the father of Mikey Lorna and that Kimberly Scarborough was the mother.

Tyson married Monica Turner and they had two kids, Amir and Rayna with the icon also considering her oldest daughter, Gena, as his own, according to The New York Times.

After they divorced in 2003, Tyson’s girlfriend, Sol Xochitl, gave birth to two kids, Miguel Leon and Exodus.

Heartbreakingly Exodus, passed away from an accident when she was only four-years-old.

He married his third and current wife Lakiha Spicer in 2009 and the couple have two children together, Milan and Morocco.

Recently it was claimed the legend would have been ‘killed’ if he intervened in an argument between Boosie Badazz and Tyson’s daughter, the rapper boasted.

Badazz, real name Torrence Hatch, has been accused of transphobia over comments against Zaya Wade, the trans daughter of NBA hero Dwyane Wade.

Following the row, which the 38-year-old refused to apologise for in an appearance on Tyson’s podcast, which led to the former champ’s non-binary daughter confronting him.
